Update on area detours
Several road projects have caused detours on heavily-traveled roads
in the Paynesville area in September. Highway 23 was closed east
of town for several days over the last couple weeks for work on the railroad bridge, causing Highway 23 traffic to be detoured through the Industrial Park, down Washburne Avenue, and back onto Highway 23 at the stoplight. This work should now be done, but work will now be done on the railroad crossing on Washburne Avenue.|
Detours affecting the area. . .
Highways 4 and 55 between Paynesville and the five-mile bridge east of town will be detoured for the month of September as MnDOT crews rehabilitate the concrete, do a mill overlay, repair culverts, and extend and add turning lanes. The road is open for local traffic and business. A four-way stop has been added at the intersection of Highway 55, Highway 124, and Co. Rd. 181 on the southeast edge of town. The detour route uses County Road 180, CSAH 34,and Highway 124. MnDOT expects the detour to last a month and the project to take two months.
